Turner gave up four runs (two earned) on eight hits and two walks with two strikeouts over 6.1 innings against Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.
Despite plenty of talent, Turner has struggled here in his first full season in the Pacific Coast League. Granted, the parks are hitters' havens for the most part, but neither Turner's strikeout rate nor his ground ball rate have been impressive by any stretch of the imagination. He still stands a good chance to advance quickly due to the current rotation in Miami, but he's probably have to take his fair share of lumps as he learns to battle big league hitting.
